Did a LEGO Designer Hint at the Rumored LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192)?

Here’s something coming out of the Brickset Forums yesterday regarding the highly rumored and anticipated updated LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192). I saw it yesterday but there was plenty of San Diego Comic Con 2017 news and planning that I held off on reporting it.

If you’re familiar with the set listings on Brickset, you would sometimes see something called “Bricklist Notes” in which LEGO designers can put notes into sets they have designed to give some information about the creative process. Hans Burkhard Schlömer, who is on the LEGO Star Wars design team, has worked previous sets including the Millennium Falcon (75105) and UCS sets such as the Slave I and the Assault on Hoth (75098) has given an very interesting note on a set that was released this year. In the Republic Fighter Tank (75182) listing, Hans wrote:

Clones need a ride too! I did this set as a quick side-project while working on a much, much, much, much, much, much larger set which is going to be announced on September 1st 2017.

If you’re a Star Wars fan, you would know that September 1 is the planned date for Star Wars Force Friday II event for The Last Jedi. I’m not a rocket scientist but that sounds like a big ol’ hint for the Millennium Falcon, doesn’t it? Or it could just be that reported UCS BB-8 (75187) that is supposedly coming as well.

We’ll all see together in about one and a half months when all the new LEGO … Continue

New Rumors of LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon Coming

This year marks the 40th anniversary of Star Wars and rumors have started to swirl about a LEGO Star Wars UCS set that has been rumored for a while. It’s pretty easy from the image above that it’s the Millennium Falcon. There are various users on Eurobricks who have some information about the new UCS Millennium Falcon. Paperballpark mentions that it’ll have interchagable radar dishes, one round and one rectangular, so you can display it as it is shown in Episodes 4-6 or in Episode 7.

To give more speculation on the UCS Millennium Falcon, the box on the updated UCS Death Star (75159)icon shows a blacked out silhouette of the Falcon on the bottom left corner that is more prominent than the silhouettes of the other ships. This could absolutely mean nothing at all or LEGO could be hinting at it for a while.

Given that the original 10179 UCS Millennium Falcon is one of the most definitive sets in LEGO Star Wars history and a holy grail for many fans, a new one would be great news. Fans weren’t too happy with the re-release of the Death Star since it wasn’t retired for that long but it’s safe to say that they would welcome a re-release of the UCS Falcon with open arms and wallets. There are many factors that contribute to the set being legit such as the Star Wars 40th anniversary and reports from good sources like Paperballpark and a “friend” that makes me think the set will be coming sooner than … Continue
